Synopsis: Akimbo is excited to have his cousin, Kosi, visit him on the game reserve where he lives, and when a visiting scientist invites the boys to join her when she studies a pack of baboons, they can’t wait to assist her in the bush. The baboons they find are fun to observe, but when a black leopard threatens the pack–and the scientist–Akimbo and Kosi are reminded that danger is ever present in the African bush. Alexander McCall Smith takes young readers on a safari to his beloved Africa in this perfect chapter book, beautifully brought to life with illustrations by LeUyen Pham.

Including 3 pages of brilliant baboon facts!

About the Author: Alexander McCall Smith has written more than fifty books, including the bestselling No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency mysteries, the Isabel Dalhousie series, and many children’s stories, including the Akimbo, Harriet Bean, and Max and Maddy series. A professor of medical law at Edinburgh University, he was born in what is now Zimbabwe and currently lives in Scotland.

LeUyen Pham illustrated five previous Akimbo stories, as well as numerous picture books, including Freckleface Strawberry by Julianne Moore, and Big Sister, Little Sister, which Pham also wrote. She lives in San Francisco, CA, with her husband and young son.
